The Stafford Brothers’ Las Stralia residency keeps it wild

Gold Coast, Australia natives Matt and Chris Stafford have been a big, fun part of the dynamic musical programming at Light Nightclub at Mandalay Bay. As they wrote on their “love letter to music” on Light’s blog, “Because of music, we have traveled the world ... Just two brothers, a party kangaroo and a little koala.”

The Stafford Brothers revamped their Vegas residency this year by creating a high-energy world around their music, a wacky place they like to call Las Stralia. The kangaroo and the koala are usually involved, but a visit to Las Stralia could also feature live percussion, skateboard ramps, the Australian Bikini Team ... there’s no telling, really. And no rules.

Once Daylight Beach Club reopened for the season at Mandalay Bay, it was immediately clear that Las Stralia would need to expand its boundaries (or lack thereof). This is one monthly party that was tailor-made for the sun-drenched pool decks at Daylight. We advise you get there early for some pre-Aussie chill time before the crazy begins.
